I was just at the Native instruments website, I was blown away by how realistic the demo’s sound for Kontakt.
If you go to the page for that product you can hear music created (usually emulating real instruments) in a variety of genres with this VST.
It is a huge library of samples that comes with the sampler and I am very tempted buy the fact that all NI products are half price this weekend.
So my question to the forum is this:
Assuming you know Cubase well, and assuming you can play your MIDI controller well (Keys and/or guitar) what kind of learning curve is involved in getting sequencer tracks made with a high quality sampler to the level of realism that can be heard in the product demos.
I assume that there must be more to it than pick the right patch and then compose and play well. I imagine that there would be a lot of tweaking and editing and learning how to do so. Or is a simple as pick a good patch and play well and it will sound real.
I am looking to get a sense of what kind of time commitment is involved in getting those real real sounding emulations going.
